Few things are more exciting than stand-up fishing! Our fully custom and very affordable 30-50 lb. class Technique-Specific stand-up trolling/chunking rod features a fast and ultra strong e-glass rod blank, providing both a sensitive tip and plenty of backbone for stubborn tuna. At 30-50 lb. class, this rod features a full set of dependable AFTCO roller guides that are under-wrapped and double over-wrapped for reliability.
This rod is my absolute go-to for medium duty trolling applications with 30 to 50 lb. line yet light enough for stand-up chunking and live bait fishing, including nighttime swordfishing. This 6’0” model is built with a two-piece aluminum butt with optional AFTCO three-piece Storabutt for optimal storage. From white and blue marlin to yellowfin tuna and wahoo, and from coast to coast and beyond this 30-50 lb. class stand-up trolling/chunking rod will get the job done!

Line/Lure Ratings: Nearly every rod on the market includes a label or etching indicating suggested weight ratings. This is merely a suggestion as no rod performs equally well casting a 1 oz. lure and a 6 oz. lure. Line ratings are also suggestive with different implications from one manufacturer to the next.
Length: The length of a rod is vital. With spinning rods increased length provides greater casting distance, a useful attribute on the flats when sight fishing wary predators. Extra casting distance is also beneficial when throwing lures into a headwind and when fishing from the surf. Conversely, a shorter rod is a better choice when skipping lures under docks and overhanging mangrove shorelines, and for increased backbone when battling powerful game fish.
Guides: Selecting the proper guides is often a puzzle. With no moving parts, Fuji K Guides are the easiest to maintain and are an excellent choice when fishing monofilament or braid. AFTCO Roller guides provide the benefit of reduced line wear and fatigue, which can cause premature tackle failure during extended battles. Roller guides are typical on big game trolling rods, but far less vital on light to medium class tackle.
Grips: Cork grips weigh next to nothing and provide a firm grip on inshore/backcountry rods. EVA foam is the standard for all near-shore and offshore saltwater rods.
Reel Seats: Aluminum reel seats are standard on big game stand-up/trolling rods when using reel clamps otherwise lightweight graphite is the best choice.
